Dentistry

Good dental care provides a solid foundation on which your pet can enjoy a longer, healthier life. If you’re not properly caring for your companion’s teeth and gums, you are placing them at a greater risk of developing serious dental conditions that can negatively impact their entire body. Ridge Lake Animal Hospital can help protect your pet’s mouth through our comprehensive pet dentistry services, including routine preventative care and advanced treatment of existing oral health problems.

By the time your pet reaches the age of 8 weeks, you should begin bringing them in for dental exams with our highly skilled staff. We’ll take close a look at your pet’s teeth and examine under the gum line for evidence of any potential dental problems. We may also take some digital radiographs (x-rays) of your companion’s mouth should further analysis be required. Next, we’ll perform a thorough cleaning through which we will scale the teeth using an ultrasonic dental tool. We’ll follow it up with a polishing to bring your pet’s teeth to a clean, lovely shine.

In addition to our preventative dental health care services, we also offer a broad range of advanced treatment options to address any existing dental problems that your pet may be experiencing. This includes tooth repair, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery, as needed.

Finally, our friendly, knowledgeable staff will work with you to provide you with all of the tips, advice, guidance and demonstrations you need to provide your pet with quality dental care at home, in between vet visits. Let’s work together to help improve your pet’s chances of achieving a happy, healthy smile for life!
